Ozone Platform (OZP)


OZP is a web-based platform that allows users to easily access all their online tools from one location. Not only can users access websites and applications they can group them and configure applications to interact with each other via a small JavaScript library, inter-window communications


Apps are web-based tools or services that you use in the browser. They do not need to be downloaded.


The Marketplace is a search and discovery catalog for tools and services including applications and widget listings. Here users can interact with the apps, and bookmark them for use.


Dashboards are customizable layouts of tools and services including widgets and applications. They provide a simple, quick, reusable way to create workflows for mission and business needs.


Lightweight, single-purpose Web applications that offer a summary or limited view of a larger Web application. Widgets can be assembled to create dashboards and dynamic workflows, but can also be easily added to websites, blogs, or other specialized app/pages to provide specific functionality enhancements.


Widgets and apps communicate within the browser. Data lives on the browser and is not sent back and forth to servers, this reduces network latency and improves response time.


Ozone is controlled via plugin modules that allow custom authorization and authentication on a user-by-user basis. The flexibility of the framework enables widget developers to easily include their own widget-based security.
